Nevada Indian Affairs Commission, Carson City.
The administration and activities of the American Indian Affairs Commission for the State of Nevada are covered in this fourth report, which also gives an accounting of funds for which the Commission is responsible. The report discusses problems in the following 5 areas: (1) national Indian policy; (2) jurisdiction of the Indian reservations; (3) public assistance for Nevada Indians; (4) population and income information; and (5) education and the Nevada Indian. Recommendations are made concerning Indian reservations, population and income, and education, including (1) that whatever degree of law and order authority over their reservations the individual tribes agree they can assume should be returned to them; (2) that tribal judges on Indian reservations be made justices of the peace in order that they may hear cases of non-Indians who are arrested for committing crimes on Indian land; (3) that the legislature initiate some controls for checks and balances to insure personal accountability of department heads and supervisors, especially in regard to equal employment opportunity; (4) that whenever an Indian tribe desires to be the agency to administer Johnson O'Malley Funds, the state contract directly with Indian Tribal Councils to administer such funds; and (5) that courses related to Indian culture and arts, Indian tribal law and government, and Indian history be added to the public school curriculum.
